Synesthesia

deny it and sweep it under the carpet

“Synesthesia could not be a real perceptual phenomenon because it contradicted standard notions of separate sensory channels in the brain. This “must” be  too New Age, and might ruin your career.”

This is a typical reaction of scientific orthodoxy to something it cannot explain: deny it and sweep it under the carpet. But…

Despre reclamatii

Uni oameni nu au alta treaba pe lumea asta decat sa se planga de ceva: ceva nu merge, cineva a facut ceva rau, din cauza lui X uite ce se intampla.

  • Cand guvernul scade pensiile sau creste impozitele si omu’ se plange de asta, face o reclamatie.
  • Cand conduce masina si unu se baga in fata si il claxoneaz, face o reclamatie.
  • Cand sefu’ la serviciu ii spune ca a gresit, sefu’ face o reclamatie.
  • Cand pustiul  de 6 ani urla ca nu i-au luat ciocolata… face o reclamatie.

PERSUASIUNEA NATURALA

O “INTERPRETARE” NEURO-LINGVISTICA
…doar pentru cei interesati de inginerie microsociala.

Acum cateva zile am intalnit o femeie cu o competenta NATURALA in “social engineering”; la o cafea undeva prin Centru Vechi  negociam o tranzactie imobiliara cand in mijlocul conversatiei  o femeie spune:

“Totul e clar, ce nu intelegeti, dumneavoastra nu respectati acum conditiile mele.”

In prima clipa raman mut. Uimit de competenta naturala si de frumusetea expresiei.  Eficace si compacta. Apoi disociat imi curg prin minte codurile  de persuasiune folosite cu asemena naturalete.
PUTIN REVERSE – ENGINEERING

The Brain Map

Chestia cu creierul nu e simpla dar nisite baieti au facut o baza de date cu functii detaliate pe arii corticale si pe puncte in spatiu pe care le-au studiat.
Cum numarul de celule este enorm cercetarile sunt inca punctiforme si nu exista inca o harta detaloata a creierului la nivel, de grupuri de celule.)

Problems

Problems as limitless Opportunities

frigo

I’m interested in trying to understand whole individuals and whole ideas through the fragments of perceptual memory, the sound bites, and the semiotic tokens collected by society and recollected by the individual. It’s the product of these carefully selected elements that multiplies out to a greater whole, and it’s in that product that I look for a more holistic understanding. My present approach evolved out of what seemed at the time to be an artistic cul-de-sac: damage to the nerves in my forearm from the single-minded pursuit of pointillism. Driven to think of other ways to create art, I began pushing myself to experiment with new media: my torso, a tricycle, X-rays, dandelions, the Bible, viewers’ experiences, and so on. The selection of the medium became integral to the art, as much a part of the story and the holistic experience as the selected fragments themselves. In bringing my work to the public I look to create a public dialog with art, frequently inviting the audience to contribute in some way, nearly always breaking apart the artistic process in order to make it connect to a more immediate reality through video that shows manipulation of the medium from fragments into a unified whole.

Learn How to Learn

Un cersetor pe margine de drumului opreste un calugar ce venea cu un sac de peste proaspat pescuit din lac  si il intreaba umil daca nu are sa-i dea  “o bucata de peste sa scape de foame”. Calugarul pios scoate din traista un peste si il intinde cersetorului, il binecuvanteaza si pleaca in drumul sau. Saptamana urmatoare, cersetorul il roaga pe calugarul cu sacul plin sa se milostiveasca de el. Calugarul iubitor de oameni ii da iar un peste sa-si osatoiasca foamea si saptamana dupa saptamana cersetorul primeste cate un peste de la calugarul milostiv si iubitor de oameni. Dar intr-o zi de mare seceta calugarul ostenit, intors cu sacul gol ridica din umeri a neputinta cand cersetorul ii cere tainul de peste. Cersetorul ridica din colb o poarta si il omoara pe loc pe calugar. Ajuns in fata judecatii divine calugarul se intreaba “Doamne cu ce am gresit?” “I-ai dat si nu l-ai invatat sa faca” ii raspunde vocea.

Crowd management

Un act reflex conditionat care ne poate salva viata.
In 1989 la universitate am simtit ce inseamna puterea multimii, presiunea extraordinara care aproape m-a strivit, m-a luat pe sus ca un val gigantic in furtuna pe mare. Eram inutil. Frica, groaza, furia intr-o multime a omorat si omoara mai multi oameni decat pericolul pe care-l infrunti individual.

In conditii de dezastru ca cele din club ‪#‎colectiv‬, dincolo de autorizatii, multiple cai de iesire, echipamente de stingere a incendiilor si materiale ignifuge, PROBLEMA dupa confuzia si indecizia initiala, este Anxietatea – Frica – Panica ce se instaleaza in oameni.

In momentul doi multimea se comporta ca un organism multi-celular fara element de comanda si control. Efectul este devastator si letal.

Adrian C. povesteste despre primele momente de dezastru la club #colectiv :
“Apoi m-am intors la intrarea in club. O mare de trupuri in vagonul metalic din care ieseau maini intinse. Cativa oameni trageau de ele. Prietena care iesise ma intreba disperata daca i-am vazut sotul, daca iesise. Nu, nu il vazusem. Am inceput sa trag si eu de maini. “Ne rupeti picioarele, nu mai trageti”. Oamenii erau cazuti in multe straturi, cu picioarele prinse jos. Cu greu reuseam sa extragem cate unul si-l puneam cativa metri in spate. (…) La intrare mainile intinse erau acum negre. Si fierbinti. Cand ii scoateam unii aveau gura plina de sange, nu stiam decat ca misca toti. Unui baiat pe care il scosesem afara inca ii ardeau hainele si parca nu vedeam asta. Cineva a inceput sa i le rupa.”
La club #colectiv oamenii au ramas blocati.In movile de oameni. Intre oameni.
Si au murit.
Punct.

Human MInd

by John P. Lynch

Your mind is real, everyone has one, but unfortunately it does not seem to exist in a material sense, which makes any theory of the mind difficult. Unlike your body, your mind cannot be physically dissected nor easily explained. Instead, scientists have to observe behaviors in humans and other animals, invent clever tests, use electronic surveillance, and seek out persons with specific damage to various parts of the brain just to get a glimpse into the workings of the mind; and although we have discovered some fascinating data, it is an ongoing process.

Calibrare si Acuitate

Oameni si Oameni.

Uneori cand cand nu ii intelegi pe unii, parerea mea e ca nu ai lucrat suficient muschiul senzorial : “incerci”  sa calibrezi fara sa-ti fi dezvoltat suficient acuitatea senzoriala pe toate canalele de input, Vizual Auditiv, Kinstezic, Oolfactiv Gustativ + Vestibular .

Progressive vs. Conservative language

I got tired of cursing the newspaper every morning. I got tired of seeing what was going wrong and not being able to do anything about it.George Lakoff - UC Berkeley professor of Cognitive Science and Linguistics

Limbajul (verbal si non verbal) relfecta procesele cognitive, structura de valori a celui ce transmite si, cu precizie, codurile interne prin care isi reprezinta realitatea.

Iar prin limbaj acceptat implicit sau creat artificial in discursul public, sustinut de transa de autoritate , factorii de decizie (policymakers, corporate, cultura, social) pot construi structuri  si procese cognitive noi, pot schimba valori si credinte si chiar pot modifica perceptii.

Ecologic, Sustenabil, Evolutiv? Depinde de cultura fiecarui decident.

Human Excellence Reverse Engineering = NLP

Dupa multe floricele, pasarele si poezii despre om, incarcate cu sentimente si emotii, interpretari si evaluari “subiectiv-statistice”, prin care unii cred vor evolua in secolul 21 (unde oare?), va propun sa ne intoarcem cu picioarele pe sol si mintea in realitatea perceputa si sa invatam sa decodam prin reverse engineering, Excelenta Umana = Hacking & Decoding Human Excellence.
In scoala, in organizatii, in business si in viata.
Asta face NLP. Practic. Ecologic. Sustenabil.
Restul, cu regret, raman simple… “pareri”.

Pragmatics

Language and Manipulation

” One of the main theses is that our use of language cements the dominant interests of our society, helping to oppress a large segment of the population. A key concept here is that of linguistic manipulation. I compare language to a screen or a veil, whose role it is to keep life’s ugly reality out of our conscious perimeter. As long as we don’t notice the presence of the screen or the veil, we are being manipulated. One should keep in mind, however, that it is not language itself, or its use as such that does the oppression. The true oppressor is society, or more precisely: the way it organizes itself. “- Jacob L. Mey, “Whose Language”

…mass-oriented use of language not necessarily, or even at all, represents the masses’ interests, but rather those of a small circle of influential people, the ‘mass moguls’ and their friends in politics and business. Such use of language identifies with the interests of the ruling classes rather than with those of the ruled masses; it is always manipulative.”Jacob L. Mey, “Whose Language”.

…”… le discours de la science, en tant qu’il se recommanderait de l’objectivité, de la neutralité, de la grisaille, voire du genre sulpicien, est tout aussi malhonnête, aussi noir d’intentions que n’importe quelle autre rhétorique.” Jacques Lacan, ‘La métaphore du sujet’

Constructal Law

Wealth means movement today, not some gold hidden in a cave and forgotten. This view places the concept of “wealth” in physics. A country is wealthy (developed, advanced) because it moves more material and people than the underdeveloped. Fuel that flows (extracted, sold, burned) is wealth , because it sustains the movement of people and goods, in accord with the constructal-law tendency to morph to move more easily. Fuel saved in the ground is not wealth, because it does not create movement. Likewise, money that is being spent (to drive the flow of fuel, which generates movement) is wealth; money that is hoarded (not spent) is not wealth.Adrian Bejan PhD. -The Constructal Law in Nature and Society

Hypnosis by a master: Gerald Kein

Hypnosis: A part of healing from ancient times. The induction of trance states and the use of therapeutic suggestion were a central feature of the early Greek healing temples, and variations of these techniques were practiced throughout the ancient world.

Modern hypnosis began in the eighteenth century with Franz Anton Mesmer, who used what he called “magnetic healing” to treat a variety of psychological and psychophysiological disorders, such as hysterical blindness, paralysis, headaches, and joint pains. Since then, the fortunes of hypnosis have ebbed and flowed. Freud, at first, found it extremely effective in treating hysteria and then, troubled by the sudden emergence of powerful emotions in his patients and his own difficulty with its use, abandoned it.

In the past 50 years, however, hypnosis has experienced a resurgence, first with physicians and dentists and more recently with psychologists and other mental health professionals. Today, it is widely used for addictions, such as smoking and drug use, for pain controls, and for phobias, such as the fear of flying.

Hypnosis is frequently used either independently or in concert with other treatment, including the management of pain, reduction of bleeding in hemophiliacs, stabilization of blood sugar in diabetics, reduction in severity of attacks of hay fever and asthma, increased breast size, the cure of warts, the production of skin blisters and bruises, and control of reaction to allergies such as poison ivy and certain foods.
